I'm at OP in a tournament. (I didn't know there was one, I just happened to be here.!)

Requires at least one bet eachon tournament tracks: Mon, GP, Laur, Del, & Bel.

15 total bets $20 W-P.

Any help is appreciated.

Tim

Belmont Today - Sunday

July 16 2017, 3:54 PM 

Missed yesterday for a family function and I'm pretty much chomping on the bit here on this last day of the Belmont meet. I really don't have a great history of making money at Saratoga, so this may be my last chance (hopefully kidding).

Two decent-sized W&P bets for me today. Play along if you want some action but feel comforted if they don't come in first or second because I can promise you I lose more money than you on these choices. wink.gif

Race 10 - #3, Runaway Posse (ML 8-1) - Not a big fan of backing a gelding showing only 3 of 23 wins, but I really am a bit excited to see this closer in a race I feel may have a few who don't want to go this long. Don't expect him too close early and the faster the better up front. I'll know if I have a shot by the half-mile time.

Race 11- #10, Two Down One to Go (ML 12-1) - I can see a few others winning here but I'm intrigued with this gelding who should have been racing on the turf. Started out on the turf in seven consecutive starts, then moved to the dirt in his last nine starts. Hidden Beyers way back on turf hints at ability on the turf, so what if these last nine dirt races have him set now? Also like seeing he's been protected from a claim since the AQ inner in January. We'll see.

Nonetheless, I hope I at least entertained you losers with my BS comments! lol

I can't imagine hitting this pick four and not getting paid. Four contentious legs. Gonna spend a little extra to go deeper.

I'll use your pick in the finale, but there may be a little too much speed for him to deal with. Going one spot further inside for my key, Fulmer, but I'm still at least 5-6 deep.

10th race is a real puzzle. I really want to be against the 1, El Talento. Lots of speed possible and sets up for your closer, but him, LOL and the scratched Grey Fox coming out of the same race are all dedicated hangers. As of now, I've marked up 5,8,9 11 as "A" and 2,3,6 as "C."

G'bob, I also used your pick in the finale. Cheap P4's today. Decent W&P bets, though I like my 10th race pick more than the 11th. If you have time, watch the video of Runaway Posse in his last start...

Either way, good luck today my friend.

Still alive, g'bob? I had this one and now need the 2-3-7-9 to go ahead for leg 3. But I need at least one of my two in the last two legs to have a shot in the P4 because I singled both in different bets to keep the price down. In addition to W&P bets, of course.

Barely. Had the four marked as a B on the form, but a C on the ticket. Thought the six would argue the front end in the eighth. Did key the winner of the ninth and covered with pick threes. Crowd loves the one in the tenth. Hope they're wrong. Other Pletcher, anyone?

Hate the 1 here. Reverse jinx.

Saw that move and thought you were home free.

So did I! By the top of the stretch to the finish line, I purchased a new car and then reversed it (only kidding, but I really thought I was a winner there).

I'm OK WITH THE 1,4,6,9. If your ten stays north of 10-1 I might save. I had three as a C, getting some sneaky money. Maybe.

In my defense Timmy---
I didn't handicap any before going there.
I didn't know there was a tourney.
When I got behind, I only played 15-1 or longer.

That said- I grossed $50 in a 15 race $20 WP event.

However I did win my entry fee back in a 'door prize' drawing. + free lunch buffet.

At least you collected, g'bob. Good job!

For anyone other than g'bob reading this post, watch the video of the 10th race at Belmont yesterday (Sunday). I had a $50 W&P bet on the #3, Runaway Posse at 6.30-1 odds. I was all set to reach for my calculator to see how much I had won. Boy, this game can be so tough at times! lol
